Product description

Review

"Dr. de Bono does not claim to be able to turn us all into Miltons, Da Vincis, and Einsteins . . . . but his techniques provide an alternative to just sitting around waiting for the Muse to appear. The Muse never appears to most of us--hence the value of this book.""--Times Educational Supplement" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

From the Back Cover

This book is intended for use both at home and at school. At school the emphasis has traditionally always been on vertical thinking which is effective but incomplete. This book is about lateral thinking which is the process of using information to bring about creativity and insight restructuring. Lateral thinking can be learned, practiced and used. It is impossible to acquire skill in it just as it is possible to acquire skill in mathematics. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
